Edit: Accidental leak from NoA possibly reveals that the Easter characters are Chrom, Lucina, Xander, and Camilla. If this turns out to be true, going to be slightly disappointed because fucking three reds. That is a pain in the rear to draw for. Oh well, not like I have enough Eldigans yet. >.>

Last time I doubted a leak, I got owned hard. Funny that they're making Xander available now when Vanilla Xander isn't and won't be for another two months.

That said, I have no idea who the female silhouette belongs to since only Azura has that much hair (I guess Camilla if I'm being generous with proportions).


Anyways, 8/15 for Cavs, but raising Armors is hard (anything past 20 and I'm brickwalling, even with Olivia support, maybe if Draug didn't suck and I didn't have to field two of him).

My song of the moment is a very unorthodox and uncharacteristic choice for me.  It's "Heavy" by Linkin Park f/ Kiiara.  My punk and metal elitist friends be damned, I still think Hybrid Theory is one of the best rock albums ever.  I can get down with that.  So when I heard this new Linkin Park doing a pop song, my kneejerk reaction was to cry sellout because this wasn't the Linkin Park I knew and enjoyed. 

Then something compelled me to listen to the song again and pay attention to the lyrics.  And the song became very poignant to me and spoke to all the stuff still weighing heavily on my mind given all the difficulties life's dealt me over the past few years.  Stuff I don't really want to elaborate on because it still hurts.  Apparently, that's exactly what the song is about- struggling with all the internal conflicts regarding heavy stuff going on in your life.

So everything be damned, this is a good song and I really like it.

SO1's final boss was Satan

There goes another JRPG off my list.  Sometimes I wonder if I should just save myself and stop reading about these games...
Not sure what Aeolus is talking about. SO1's final boss is named Jie Revorse. There is an earlier antagonist named Asmodues, but he's not literally the demon Asmodeus (just named after him by the game creators) despite living in the Demon Realm (which should probably be called the monster realm since they are not literally demons as I recall).

The game with Satan (well Satanail) as the final boss is The Last Hope. :p

Riiiight. Next you're gonna tell me that the Lance of Longinus isn't the size of a building and used by a living mecha to slay an angel.

But yeah, I meant Asmodeus (who I forgot was not the final boss due to not being bishie enough). Also, thanks for reminding me of SO4's retarded final boss. What a fucking twat.

What little info I can find suggests the game is not good.  @Aeolus

Famitsu gave it 8/9/8/7 for 32/40. I dunno what this means because doesn't a 9/10 mean avg. game over at Famitusu?

Famitsu scores are essentially random.  Or perhaps a function of how much they've been bribed if you're feeling cynical.  Plenty of bad games get high scores but I've also seen some pretty good games get low scores.

If you think about it for a second the realities of the video game reviewing business are such that it's hard enough for most publications to make ends meet with only one person reviewing each game.  Famitsu expects us to believe that they have four people play and review every single game.  Please.  Most of them probably didn't even play the game for more than a few minutes.

The funny thing is everyone continues to cite Famitsu because most Japanese publications don't even do numeric scores.  They expect you to actually read the review.

The title does not appear in game until part B starts. The whole first playthrough is like a super extended prologue. The real meat of the story doesn't appear until part C.

This is a very odd ball game that messes with so many gameplay conventions.

Well, internet privacy is officially dead in the US.  I seriously recommend anyone in the US invest in a VPN service because that will be the only way to have any privacy online.  Disabling cookies and privacy plugins will do jack shit against this.

Although Samurai Champloo's music works well in context, the individual tracks tend to get a bit repetitive when you listen to them on their own.  Still, there are catchy sections here and there, and this can be a nice soundtrack to leave playing in the background.

Samurai Champloo - Sneak Chamber
Samurai Champloo - 1st Samurai
Samurai Champloo - Aruarian Dance
Samurai Champloo - The Million Way of Drum
Samurai Champloo - Shiki no Uta

Apparently your average Ohioan would rather get killed by a tornado then miss like 30 seconds of a basketball game because of weather alerts
